Pedunculated Hepatic Hemangioma - A case report

Pedunculated hemangioma is a rare and atypical hepatic angioma. We report the case of a pedunculated hepatic hemangioma presenting as an abdominal sub-hepatic mass incidentally discovered in a 66-year-old woman with anal cancer. The diagnosis was strongly suggested by the vascular features of the lesion on spiral computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. A surgical removal of the mass was decided to prevent potential risk of ischemic volvulus along the pedicle. Histo-pathological examination confirmed this diagnosis. Contrast enhanced thin sections and subsequent multiplanar reconstructions on CT and MR are very helpful to show the angioma features and the pedicle linking the lesion with the liver.
